Chesterfield is a good one to look at as it is a large county. 30% in, McCain won 53-46, Romney up 56-43. Going to be tight.

Morris reporting that VA exit polls show Romney with an 11 pt. lead with Independents and that Obama is only winning women by 5 pts.

My vote will be there. I am in a rural county but close enough to DC to be somewhat liberal-infected plus 25% snowed by the media. Turnout was stronger than 08. The peoples came out from voting and headed to their cars or to the Republican booth. The two old Dems were alone although I went over to ask a couple questions. We will contribute a lot of votes, hopefully 2 to 1 ratio.

Keep in mind the red, rural counties usually come in first. The people’s republic for fairfax county will usually be about last.

Looks like nationally Dems top turnout is 39%=loss. That means all the D+1 million polls were WRONG.

And this: @ali Pew, Ras, and Gallup (according to their own data) all think the Exit Polls are heavily weighted D. Those firms showed ties. Dem TROUBLE!

I would add that Virgil Goode will get close to 1 percent of the VA vote. That might be enough to sink Romney, it will be that close, but I hope not.

From SW Virginia, Floyd County area (they ousted Dem Boucher in ‘10)—heard from a friend that said polling was heavier in that conservative area than he had ever seen it.

Did you see this:

CNN says Ohio exit polls 51 - 48 Obama.

Also says Ohio electorate was 38 D, 31 R, 31 I for a D+7.

Am hoping their polls are skewed and that Republicans did considerably better than -7 in Ohio.

If not, the election ends early tonight because they smoked us where it counted most.

No surprise. Long lines ALL DAY in tidewater. Huge turnout. Not necessarily good for our side, but interesting to note.

Is CNN exit polling in all precincts or just Cleveland?

Exit pollsters skewed their polls to fit “the 2008 model”?

“Exit pollsters skewed their polls to fit “the 2008 model”?”

More than likely. When in doubt, skew the results to what you’d like them to be.

We’ll find out soon when SBE gets the gerbils going again.

@ali on Twitter running numbers on exit polls. They are closer to +4 in VA only, everywhere else the D number is 39%, which puts them way under almost every poll out there.

I haven't seen lines like I did today at my polling place before. The couple we rode with (80 and 82, lived in Accomack county all their lives)said the same thing. Hubby and I waited 30 minutes, the other couple an hour -- there were far more people in the A-K line and our last name begins with L.

+4 is EXIT POLLS. Not real vote count. We will have no idea what the enthusiasm level is till after the numbers come in.

Fox just announced that VA is going to pause reporting while they extend poll hours to anyone in line by 7PM. Not sure how long it will take to clear the line, but the margin looks good so far in VA.

So far, two blue states from 2008 have flipped (IN and GA).

Florida doesn’t look very good right now.

City of Chesapeake, 2nd largest city in VA, Obama carried by 1 point in 2008. With 53% in, Romney leads 60-40. If this holds, we can run up some large numbers here.
